RFH Photos available – and Tour info during Wednesday (no longer on 10th)!

Well done all who managed to attend on Friday - much to Graham's delight both the Abendlied and O Magnum were covered which is great and means we are well on the way to doing O Magnum on Tour/Autumn as well as at Christmas.  Please keep up the good work and do lots of practising before Wednesday so that we can nail it!! Apologies - Tour Info Evening no longer on 10th July As I'm sure you'll appreciate it's a very busy time for Onestage (the tour company), and our scheduled slot with them on 10th is no longer possible.   Instead, information will be given out by them in a brief session during this week's rehearsal (and there will be a quick opportunity to ask questions).

Choir on FRIDAY not Wednesday this week!

Hopefully you all know by now that we are rehearsing on Friday not Wednesday this week - still at the URC though and still 8-10pm! Graham will be back from his travels after wowing audiences in Moscow!  The message now is: be prepared for ANYTHING!  Please bring ALL your music with you to every rehearsal from now on.  We only have 4 rehearsals until the end of term so we will be running over all the rest of the programme in that time. Also please ensure that if you don't want to carry the ESM book in your folder

Please take a moment to check you have all your music before Weds!

Well done to those who made it on Saturday - Graham was really chuffed with how the Mozart is progressing. We were a bit thin on the ground but hopefully the good work covered will be spread to the rest of you....! To those that didn't make it, we did Mozart's Missa Brevis all the way through, as well as Pie Jesu, and we also started My Heart is Inditing (Handel), so please practise these before Wednesday so that you don't fall too far behind. If we have time on Wednesday we will also be starting Abendlied - Rheinberger. There's plenty of help with Choralia files etc. on the Music Programme & Practise page.

See you at the Workshop – 9.30am (doors open 9am) at the URC tomorrow!

Looking forward to seeing you all at our Saturday workshop tomorrow at the URC. By all accounts the weather won't be up to much, so you're far better off singing 🙂 At this rehearsal Graham will be running through the entire Mozart Missa Brevis in D, so please do keep practising and make sure you bring your pencils as we start working on the dynamics and finer details! Please also bring with you Brian Knowles' Pie Jesu, and actually make sure that for future rehearsals you bring ALL your music so that you're ready for when we start new pieces. All details for music scores and practising can be found on our Music Programme & Practise page.
